Omer Soker has held senior general management roles with two multinational corporations; Thomson Reuters and Reed Elsevier, running multiple business units at both. In contrast, he has also launched his own businesses in Hong Kong and Australia. He understands both perspectives; from the complexities of corporate life to the passion of the entrepreneurial spirit.

Omer has also been a corporate change agent, re-engineering two ailing businesses back to health through tough decisions and a 'succeed at all costs' ambition. Conversely, he has volunteered his time as an accredited Buddhist teacher to help school children learn the art of happiness. These opposing experiences have provided him unique insights to connect with people at a deeper level, through both soft and hard skills - as well as a powerful grasp of the cause-and-effect relationship of individual behaviours and company actions over the short and long term.

Omer integrates selected martial arts philosophies he learned as a practitioner into the workplace, including 'how to lead-and-follow at the same time' as an employee engagement tool and 'maximum impact for minimum effort' as a productivity initiative. These diverse and balanced experiences have given Omer a fascinating view on success in corporate life.

As an inspirational corporate speaker, Omer is engaging and enthusiastic, powerful and insightful, challenging and thoughtful with a foundation of honesty and humility. He connects with people on a fundamental level of truth, and inspires them by cultivating their self-awareness, values and critical thinking. His aim is to ignite the spark within everyone, and within every company to create change for success, growth and sustained value creation.

Omer has six core programs and a range of speaking topics that can be delivered as a one-hour interactive session, half day workshop or fully integrated into your company.
